NAT LANYON’S QUEENSLAND – (NSFW)

Surf Collective: What inspires you?
Nat Lanyon: Music, life in general. Being fit & healthy I always feel more inspired, don’t get me wrong I’m still hungover alot, but you gotta push through it, because I’m not productive when I’m hung haha. Im always inspired by seeing what the people I look up to photography wise are achieving, I rarely try to copy what they do, but rather just get a general sense of inspiration from it. Music is also huge for me, but my playlists are weird & wonderful so i won’t divulge too much there.

SC: What’s your best line for getting the best shots when behind the lens?
NL: Probably no line in general, but rather making sure the model is comfortable with you & they trust you. Once you have that everything is alot easier. Sometimes Ill try and explain something through doing it myself, like a little demonstration, which always looks fucked & I think then everyone is like alright, lets get this done so this dude doesn’t do that again haha.

SC: Digital or Film? Break down your favorite setting.
NL: I shoot both, I like both. I like one for the reasons that I find the other inconvenient or a pain in the ass. Film because you don’t overshoot, you have to wait to see the results, the colours come back really nice (particularly skin), its a beautiful process.
Digital – Because I have full control over the process & can monitor light & white balance changes, its easier to change things in post & with skin work digital is more pliable than film, you can try things without worrying about wasting shots (its a worry with film as each shot costs$$$)

SC: What’s your favorite shoot story?
NL: For an editorial, its probably a story I did a little while ago, with my friend Amanda Shadforth who runs a really dope blog (the oraclefox), she styled the shoot & we shot this model from QLD Izzy J, the story was run on www.theones2watch.com & it was a really big thing for my profile. It was a really grungy cool story & I really loved the styling, Izzy is a badass model too who does that, ‘I don’t give a fuck’ look so well. so much attitude!

SC: If you could work with anyone, who would it be?
NL: Maybe Freja Erichsen, she is amazing. Shoot her somewhere in the woods or in an open space with afternoon light, minimal make up & minimal styling. That would be cool!
